Vinous 88 points - Camigliano’s 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is soft, supple and very nicely balanced. Crushed flowers, spices, dried cherries and sweet tobacco are laced into an open, textured finish framed by silky tannins.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a surprisingly big wine with bold extract and a dark, impenetrable color. It only sees six months of oak and you can taste the youth of the fruit and those just-fermented tones (carbonic like) of soda and raw cherry. It glides smoothly over the palate and would undoubtedly make an excellent pairing companion to oven-roasted lasagna or cheese and spinach-filled ravioli. This is a simple, clean and quintessentially Italian red wine.
The business was acquired in 1957 by the Ghezzi family, and the current proprietor, Gualtiero Ghezzi, has put a great deal of energy into modernizing the company, which now comprises 530 hectares, 90 of which are vineyards. He has planted new Brunello vineyards and built a new wine cellar, completely underground. Each year, the company produces about 330,000 bottles of wine, which are exported to more than 30 countries, using the best selection of grapes, with a limited per hectare yield.
